Song of the day: Bert Kaempfert – "Afrikaan Beat"

After the magnificence of The Posies (see yesterday’s post), I’m in the mood for something equally magnificent:

Bert Kaempfert – “Afrikaan Beat” (1962)


The brass! The strings! The plink-plink bass guitar! The ultra-relaxed drums! Magnificent.

By the way, this very track was selected ages ago (July last year) by the estimable Frank (Hi, Frank!) as one of Frank’s Faves on Fridays, which was a regular feature here for a while. I like Frank’s taste in music. And I love the music of Bert Kaempfert.
